As a longtime fan of the Lovely Bride bridal boutiques (see if there’s a location near you here) and the Lovely Bride blog, it’s such an honor to feature one of their shops, Lovely Bride DC, here today as the next installment of the much-loved inside the boutique series!
With thoughtful answers from Alex of Lovely Bride and beautiful photography by Lissa Ryan – this Washington DC bridal salon couldn’t be any more adorable!
What is the inspiration for the interior styling and design of your boutique?
Lovely is a bridal shop that feels like your best friend. You’ll feel cozy and at home, play dress-up with our bridal stylists, and leave feeling like you had the best time and bought the best dress. Because we know the experience AND the dress should both be Lovely.
How would you describe the kind of bride who is drawn to Lovely Bride?
The DC bride is amazing! We have everyone from your classic girl to your bohemian beauty. We have girls who come in looking for something flowy and fun that will fit in at a relaxed vineyard venue and girls who come in looking for a show-stopping gown for a grand ballroom wedding.
What is your top tip for brides-to-be right now?
You can never start shopping too early! Finding the dress can definitely help with the creative planning process!
What trends are you loving in the wedding dress world right now?
Right now we are loving strapped gowns with interesting backs – low, lace, embellished – we love them all!
